Hullo!

I thought I would tell my "Polyvore story" even though it is not exactly prize winning material :D
I joined Polyvore more than a year ago when I was in the middle of writing my Undergraduate dissertation and have used it ever since in order to clear my mind (temporarily of course!) of all the conflicting ideas I have in my head after a day of heavy reading or writing, and to indulge my passion for making collages, and looking at pretty pictures. And now I am in the middle of writing my Postgraduate dissertation ... !

I had been making 'real life' collages like this for years, filling folders with clippings from magazines in an attempt to tame the enormous stacks of Harpers Bazaar and Elle and Vogue that cluttered my bedroom floor. 

What was (and is!) so exciting about Polyvore for me is that other people have this same hobby, and suddenly I was able to see it for myself! Ultimately, I continue to use this website as an escape from my 'literary' life, playing with clothes, bags and beautiful shoes that I only wish I could afford on my student budget! 

Love, R x
